Bowron Rugs

The Bowron name has been synonymous with the world’s finest sheepskin products for over 100 years, and we stock only the ‘Gold Star’ grade of rug – the top of the range.

Bowron rugs are made exclusively from New Zealand sheepskins and are processed here at their tannery in our beautiful South Island.  Rugs are then finished and made ready for sale here and overseas.

Their exacting standards commit them to conducting their business in an environmentally sensitive manner and to producing products that are high quality, sustainable and safe.

  • Easy to care for and exceptionally long lasting, Bowron sheepskin rugs are as soft as a cloud and are available as single rugs or as multiple skins.
  • Bowron use specifically chosen, non-persistent, biodegradable chrome free chemicals that meet the requirements of REACH standards. This relates to all chemicals and dyes used throughout the process.

Sheepskin Care and Storage

Sheepskin is incredibly easy to care for, it has an inherent natural ability to repel dirt and liquid.

A regular vacuum using the standard nozzle (only) or shaking the rug is generally all that is required to keep your sheepskin clean.

Your product may have been tightly packaged for shipping and so the wool may appear flattened. Wool fibers are very resilient and will bounce back to their original soft, fluffy appearance with a vigorous shake. Lay the skin flat and any fold marks will disappear naturally after a few days.

In the event further cleaning is required then please follow these specific guidelines

Spot Cleaning

– For small soiled areas, moisten a soft cloth with luke warm water
– Clean affected area using gentle circular motions, DO NOT rub
– If cleaning agent required, use mild wool detergent, non alkaline, enzyme and bleach free e.g. Ecostore Wool Wash
– Remove excess moisture with dry cloth
– Allow to dry and gently brush with Carding brush

Baby Cocoon Care:      Shake or regular vacuum will keep baby’s cocoon clean.  Any small spills can be easily spot cleaned,  if further washing required we recommend Dryclean only.

Hand Wash

– Complete immersion into cold or lukewarm water ( max 38c/100F) DO NOT use hot
– Use a small amount of mild wool detergent, non alkaline, enzyme and bleach free
– Rinse thoroughly in cold or lukewarm water.
– Hand squeeze or gently spin by machine to remove excess water
– Follow Drying instructions.

Machine Wash

– Machine wash on gentle cycle in lukewarm water (up to 38C/100F) DO NOT use hot
– If you are unsure of the temperature of your washing machine, then only use cold water.
– Use a small amount of a mild wool detergent, non alkaline, enzyme and bleach free
– DO NOT use fabric softener.
– Hand squeeze or gently spin by machine to remove excess water.
– Follow Drying instructions.


NOTE : Excessive heat will cause hardening of leather and can cause product shrinkage.

– Products should be line or flat dried only.
– Dry away from direct sunlight and direct heat such as heaters, radiators or fires.
– DO NOT tumble dry
– DO NOT iron
– Product should be pulled back into original size and shape while damp prior to drying
– Brush gently with Carding brush while damp and again once completely dry, to encourage original fluffy appearance.
– Due to a special tanning process, Medical Rugs, Baby Rugs and Stroller Fleece can be tumble dried -use cool or warm setting only. (*Do not tumble dry Baby Cocoon)


– Products can be drycleaned using a professional drycleaning service.
– We recommend that coloured sheepskin products and Car Seat covers are Drycleaned only.


If you wish to store your sheepskin, place in a cool, airy place away from direct sunlight. We do not recommend storing in plastic bags for an extended period of time as the fibres will not breathe and condensation may occur in warm conditions.

Whilst we endeavor to provide helpful information, washing and drying of sheepskin products is done at your risk and we cannot be held responsible for unforeseen damage that may occur.

    We did a lot of online research about medical grade sheepskins, their health benefits, and the companies that provide them (from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, U.S., and several countries in Europe) before making our decision to buy from Ecowool. Besides the fact that the price from Ecowool is very reasonable, our decision was based mainly on their exceptional customer service. The sale representative was very helpful, knowledgeable, and extremely patient with all of our questions. Email communication with Ecowool was very pleasant and efficient. Our medical sheepskins arrived very quickly after our order (even with free shipping!), in careful packaging, and are top-of-the-line quality! These wonderful sheepskins make a big difference to our bed — they add warmth, comfort, and the luxurious feeling that even five-star hotels cannot provide. No more cold and damp bed during the winter, and the same sheepskins will keep our bed cool during the summer. Good sleep is such an important part of keeping us healthy, and we are so pleased that such a small change to our bed give us the best sleep in years. Highly recommend Ecowool for their products and the best customer service!
